Things to bring to the competition

  • CPA Card – You will need one to compete. If you don’t have one, you can purchase online at 
  • Music: Your music if you are Classic Physique, Bodybuilding, Fitness, or Women’s Physique – You will provide music to the DJ at registration/weigh-ins on Friday. Music can be brought on USB.
  • Mask/Face Coverings – It is mandatory that all athletes wear their face coverings when inside the building.
  • Gym bag for your clothes and food
  • Resistance bands – although some shows have weights in the pump up room, it will be very busy. Resistance bands are a great way to get pumped up backstage.
  • Towel – prepare to sweat
  • Layers – you may be hot or cold. There are variations in the venue plus your body does weird things when prepping for a show! Also when you get cold, your muscles flatten out and you’ll lose vascularity.
  • Clothing – prepare to be covered in spray tan so wear black. Loose clothes like sweat pants or a robe are best to keep your tan looking good. Flip-flops are recommended for footwear.
  • Extra Razor – in case you missed a spot
  • Handheld Mirror – As you may sweat, you may need touch-ups.
  • Extra Linens – Extra sheets and towels so you don’t lose your hotel room deposit from stained linens.
  • Toilet seat covers
